Liverpool drew 1-1 with Manchester United at Old Trafford with poor performances from Jordan Henderson and Roberto Firmino. Read the player ratings here!
The Reds gave up their 100% win rate as they drew on Sunday but it was nearly worse after Marcus Rashford scored to give Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team the lead.
Andrew Robertson then swung a cross in that Adam Lallana converted with just five minutes of the game left to level things up, while Sadio Mane saw a VAR intervention rule out his strike because of handball.
Liverpool are now just six points ahead of Manchester City at the top of the Premier League and did it without Mohamed Salah after the Egyptian was ruled out through injury. Divock Origi stepped up in his place but couldn’t replicate his success.
We all expected the Reds to beat a poor United side but it didn’t go to plan throughout the 90 minutes and it took Lallana’s first goal in two years to earn Liverpool a point.
Alisson started his first game since picking up an injury on the first game of the season and it was good to see him back in the starting team. Scroll down and click through the slides to read the player ratings from Sunday!

Didn’t have much to do on his return to first team action, but didn’t appear to be rusty following an extended period away from duties. Alisson showed what we all missed with some crisp passing from the back. We can look forward to better times with him.
